Surprise Yoga is my answer to the void!
For so many years now, I have been passionate about there being so much more to YOGA than (asana) postures.
But it’s not easy to slip the other elements into an asana practice – not in a way that helps students and seekers understand the depths that the teachings have to offer. And unfortunately we have done YOGA a disservice, because mostly the entire world thinks that YOGA is some kind of exercise!
Surprise Yoga was an idea I had, where I would offer one whole practice session (60 mins), touching on some of the other elements of YOGA – not just asana.
You actually can be doing Yoga all day and never step on a Yoga mat or form your body into a pose! Yes, indeed you can!
Not everybody feels drawn to Yoga asana, for one reason or another, and perhaps some are limited because of physical or perceived limitations. Asana is just one part of a gigantic and ancient system of Wisdom, so it is important to me as a Yoga Guide, that I try to open that up for people.
So far we have had an evening of deep relaxation and self-inquiry with an iRest® Yoga Nidra Practice, practising complete stillness with Restorative Yoga practice where we use yoga props to hold us in positions of comfort and ease, Savasana practice listening to audio teachings from wonderful teachers from around the world, a Kirtan evening of live music, chanting and hot cacao, breakfasts in the courtyard outside the yoga studio, and lots of interactive discussions touching on the Philosophy of Yoga, the Yoga Sutras (my favourite growth spurt!).
Come along on Thursday mornings from 7-8am, for a surprise practice – maybe meditation, may a Restorative Yoga, maybe an iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation, or perhaps a light breakfast of fruit and herbal teas with an informal, friendly sharing of elements I have learned, and gorgeous input and insights from the attendees as well.
